: for months now, central to mitt romney's stump speech, his laser focus on unemployment above 8%. >> 40 straight months. not been below 8% for 41. for 42. 43 straight months with unemployment. >> reporter: and just as romney travels to florida this weekend, a message from florida's republican governor before romney even arrived. the governor tweeting about huge economic gains there. "tampa, st. pete, clearwater and miami area experienced largest unemployment rate declines in the country." a tricky balance for romney, arguing voters change course amid an improving picture. romney emphatic it is not going quickly enough. >> the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> reporter: but economists say in this jobs report, that's not entirely the case. some have dropped out, but there's also been a surge in the number of baby boomers retiring. and there was more hiring in recent months than first thought. and romney working to win over voters who are out of work. now offering this about those comments he made a
's not very presidential. >> paul: what would you like to hear from romney in the speech. >> i'd like to hear, there's a vacuum created in the middle east, american power is in-- this is what happens when america is not leading in the world. the turks want america to be engaged and want american support they don't get it the the same in. >> paul: bret. >> i want to say that threats come first in the foreign policy and we're not going to favor the egyptians at the expense of the iranians or the chinese for anybody else. and we'll see what he says, shade of red, and linda mcmahon running neck and neck with her democratic opponent in connecticut of all places, we'll bring you the latest on this possible republican pickup. >> turning now to the battle for control of the united states senate and this week, we go to connecticut an unlikely place for republican pickup, but that's where a new poll find former professional wrestling executive linda mcmahon tied with chris murphy with the seat held by retiring senator joe lieberman. connecticut hasn't elected a republican to the senate in three decade
today y e of the most reliable lines in romney's campaign speeches was that under president obama the economy -- the unemployment, that is, had not gone below 8%. low today he's saying that even though there's been this slight decline, this economy is nowhere near where it should be or where it could be if he were president. >> looks like unemployment's getting better. but the truth is, if the same share of people were participating in the work force today as on the day the president got elected, our unemployment rate would be around 11%. that's the real reality of what's happening out there. >> reporter: romney is basing that on the people actually in the work force. although some economists say the rate would be closer to 9% because much of the decline in the population is due to aging of the population. romney says the current employment situation shows the president's policies aren't working and that he knows how to create jobs. in an effort to sway independent and undecided voters, romney is making a direct appeal to the middle-class. >> even those that have jobs are having t
-american communities. i am struck by this speech. if mitt romney gets criticized for going to the naacp and using the word obamacare why isn't barack obama criticized for a southern accent. if we are going to talk about pandering. this to me, you are watching somebody who we all know the president doesn't speak like that. she pandering and no one is talking about it. >> we have talked about it a lot on this show how when barack obama is speaking to certain people, whether they are workers at gm plants or black audience he tends to drop his g's and gets from folk i sy. >> in this was the middle of very successful presidential campaign. the media were siding by content to say obama says it, he is race transcending visionary beyond partisan. all this stuff that reporters were saying in 2008, they could have looked at this. it's been on youtube for five years. >> it is not same as 47%. >> why is it not. is it different? >> one difference mitt romney said he was wrong about the 47%. it took him a week. he said, quote, completely wrong. five years later, has president obama adjusted to anything in that
his speech in invesco field that caused him -- >> next week, next week, there is going to be the cover of the new yorker, the quintessential liberal magazine with mitt romney alta podium, with the other pod yom with an empty chair. devastating. >> sean: i think this president's checked out. i think he is lazy. i think admitted he's lazy. >> he'll be back. >> sean: i agree. this is going to be a vicious 32 days, i promise everybody that. thank you, karl. good to see you? >> coming up, was the president really distracted at this debate? bob woodward is making that suggestion. we're hearing major rumors of a donor scandal that is about to rock the obama campaign. could this be a link? we will ask bob woodward. and then... >> obama and biden want to raise taxes by $8 trillion. guess what? yes, we do. >> sean: yes, you do. finally, a politician is telling you the truth. lich, folks. that's the vice-president. if re-elected over a trillion doctors in new taxes. you want to vote for that option? we'll check in with charles krauthammer on this busy friday edition of "hannity." mike rowe here a
break through moment in describing the president's philosophy and even this next day governor romney started using that on his speech. >> interesting. nick, let's play it for viewers in case they missed it. >> the president has a view s.e. very similar to the view he had four years ago that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle down government would work. that's not the right answer for america. >> you like that because it's a catchy phrase? >> no. it's more than just a catchy phrase though. that's more than a scripted line. in a nutshell it synopsized how governor romney feels about the president's philosophy on government. the fact that he used it the next day in his stump speech and probably use it going forward means it has resonance and catching on with the base. >> nic, you are presidential historian, how do you describe his lackluster performance? >> primaries got very good at debating. four years since the president has debated. you could tell he was rusty. the president doesn't like to debate. james carville on another network
that it's a federal responsibility. >> mitt romney now says that he was wrong about that 47% comment as well. listen to this. >> clearly in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right. in this case, i said something that's just completely wrong. >> president obama, surprising a lot of people by not even bringing that up in the debate. but amy, i'm going to go to you first on this one. does this end the conversation about the 47%? >> well, interestingly enough, as so many pundits, so of the debate watchers have noted, president obama didn't bring it up in the debate when he had a chance, talking about the economy, talking about all these folks who are unemployed or underemployed, and it would seem to indicate that president obama was saying that this was not worth pursuing. he certainly had used it on the campaign trail. it's been used in ads. but standing there on the debate stage, he apparently made the choice that it was unworthy of him and unworthy of the audience. wi
. this is not the recovery we all wanted but we're on the road. for mitt romney it does take away one of talking points he has been very big on, number of consecutive months that the number has been at 8% or above, that line is gone from his speech. short term positives are there for president obama but long term you look at the historical numbers in terms of unemployment in presidential reelection years and depth of the political challenges are great here. >> heather: i'll ask you more about historically in a moment but the numbers have been called into question. there is actually a huge disconnect between the modest of new jobs report and significant decrease in the unemployment rate. jack welch, he went to as far to suggest that the numbers may be manipulated by the obama administration. do you think that the numbers add up? >> i think the suggestion that the numbers was cooked is relatively ridiculous. that being said. economists at the labor department will admit freely that there is a lot of margin of error in these numbers. a month after each job report these numbers are revised upward or downward.
this wrapped up for romney and pennsylvania. guest: i know that was part of the debate. there is a video circulating of a piece of the speech where he seems to be making that statement. that certainly is something that civil rights organizations 0.2 as proof -- point to that the debate is more than voter fraud. it is about what happens in november. when the pennsylvania decision broke a few days ago, i attempted to contact the gentleman and was not able to reach him. i know that was considered kind of like a smoking gun to people on one side of the debate as proof it was about more than just voter i.d.. host: church bill, new york, independent line, good morning. caller: good morning, my question is one of consistency. i take a voting rights very seriously. just as i take gun rights very seriously. do the same people who support not having to show i.d. to vote also support not showing idea to purchase a gun? they're both constitutional rights. aren't these people being disenfranchised if they have to show i.d. to purchase a gun? the same groups that support no voter i.d., are they on the
